  • Goop Lands In Nordstrom

    Gwyneth Paltrow's lifestyle and wellness label, goop, is the latest brand to be chosen by Nordstrom's Olivia Kim for a pop-in installation. From May 12 to June 25, goop-In@Nordstrom will carry a mix of products spanning across apparel, accessories, beauty, fitness, self-care and home. Products will be sold at select Nordstrom locations, including The Grove and Costa Mesa's South Coast Plaza, as well as online. 

    Like the department store's other pop-in installations, the goop shop will be merchandised in its own enclosed space, with furniture and design by 1st Dibs and custom Chinoiserie wallcoverings by Fromental.

    Said Paltrow in a release, "Our pop-ups have been an incredible opportunity to really connect with our readers and shoppers across the country — this partnership with Nordstrom allows us to provide that experience on a heightened level of scale, touching new markets and shoppers in the process.”

  • Amiri Pops-Up at Maxfield

    Amiri, a grunge, L.A.-based label founded by Mike Amiri, is the latest brand to slide into Maxfield's pop-up space on Melrose.

    The brand, known for its deconstructed denim, flannels and bomber jackets, have been seen on the likes of Gigi Hadid and her boyfriend, Zayn Malik. According to VogueAmiri's signature slashed jeans take up to five months to produce, destroy, and rebuild, using "French plonge leather patches in order to achieve that devil-may-care, rock ’n’ roll look." They also start at $1,000. 

    The Maxfield space, which has previously held pop-ups from Virgil Abloh's Off-White and Vetements, will host Amiri from May 12 through June 30. In addition to denim, the store will carry a range of sneakers, men's and womenswear, as well as women's accessories.
